Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo S90 than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53, drivers may find the Volvo S90 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo S90, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volvo S90, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the Volvo S90 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 is a little narrower than the Volvo S90, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 is slightly shorter than the Volvo S90, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S90.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S90, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 is somewhat more powerful than the Volvo S90.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the Volvo S90. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 has less cargo capacity than the Volvo S90, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
